Dear Diary, March 26 Vacation is just around the corner. Dot, Gen, and I went for a hike Saturday. We got lots of wild flowers and twice as many mosquito bites. Catherine and I went to the special assembly today. It was very interest- ing. Major Schoof of the Canadian Mounted Police addressed us, and showed us some of his weapons and armour besides several mounted skins that he got in the wilds of Africa. Dear Diary, April 10 The vacation is all over, but now the long summer one is ahead. I went visiting and had a wonderful time. My kodak bill was much too high. I went to the theater and saw a terrible picture. This afternoon Mr. Rod- ney Ellsworth came and spoke to the assembly on Game Preservation. He showed us a film and I knew the man who made it. Ruth said the Juniors ' had the same program. i . ' Dear Diary, April ll I went down town today and saw a circus parade. We had important com- pany in the evening so I missed the P. T. A. dance.

Dear Diary, April 20 There was a special assembly today. .Two police dogs of remarkable in telligence and training performed. Their names were Storm King and Peter.

Dear Diary, Feb. ll . A holiday ahead, and nobody's sorry. Wizard meetings are coming a- long fine. Being Wizard Editor is more pleasure than work, because work- ing on the Wizard is a pleasure. - ' . Mrs. Carrie Hoyt addressed our assembly in observance of Lincoln's birthday. The Burbank Band played. Ruth said that the Junior Assembly had a similar program. Dear Diary, Feb. 14 It has rained quite a bit during the last few days. I went visiting this afternoon and evening, and missed the Valentine dance that was held in the assembly. - . Dear Diary, . Feb, 20 I was sick in bed with a cold. Helen came and told me about the Sen- ior Assembly. The Senior Glee Clubs sang, and the orchestra played. Mr. Morehalt was the speaker of the program. Ruth told her that the Junior Assembly was like ours, only the Junior Glee Clubs sang. Dear Diary, ,- Feb. 27 I played tennis with Genevieve all last week. Tonight I went to the theater. The picture was very good, but--the comedy was terrible. There were several added attractions. The Senior Glee Clubs sang and the or- chestra played various selections. Dear Diary, March 6 S At last it is March! Not so very long until Easter vacation! Today we observed Arbor day in the assembly hall. Mr. Littlejohn, a naturalist, came and spoke to us about birds. He showed us several fine specimens. The program was interesting and I enjoyed it. After school I met LaVon and she said that the Junior Assembly was the same. Dear Diary, March 15 I almost forgot to write, I have been so busy. I couldn't miss this assembly though, because it is,a special one. Mr. Paul Pitman, nBig Broth- eru of KPO, came and spoke to us. He was an ideal speaker with a lot of personality. Pearl Frick danced, and Jimmy Gallon sang. I wish all the assemblies were on this order. The Juniors enjoyed the same program. Dear Diary, ' March 20 . Tuesday I went visiting, and tomorrow LaVon and I are going out for lunch and to a show. Genevieve called me, and we went to see Gobweb Kings in the Auditorium. It was presented by the H9z' class. Then Pearl Frick and Jimmy Gallon entertained us with song and dance numbers, assisted by some other juveniles.. Jesse Smith played a Xylophone solo, and the Bur- bank orchestra was an added attraction. We enjoyed the program.

Dear Diary, April 30 The time is beginning to drag. I spend half my time getting distance on the radio. The Junior Assembly was postponed today as there was a meeting of the Berkeley High School Teachers' Association at Garfield and school was dismissed early. , , Dear Diary, ' May 1 Miss Streightif's class put on a varieties program which included a Spanish dance, selections by the orchestra, a Russian dance and UHere She Goes.W The assembly assisted by singing a group of folk songs. Dear Diary, May 7 Tomorrow is a big day. LaVon and I are going to the Oakland Kennel Club dog show.' I expect to have another high camera bill, though. I heard all about Mrs. Waugh's play, UThe Book Review,n given by the L8z' class. The Juniors all enjoyed it thoroughly. Dear Diary, ' n May 15 C Today was another big day. Our class, the H9y', presented the play nSeventeen.V fl hope everybody enjoyed it, but I am unable to express my opinion. That is the hard part of being in a play--one can't see himself as others see him. ' Dear Diary, ' May 29 5 Today is Field Day. I wonder why the weather is always so hot on this day! Many different activities are on the program. The P. T. A. had the cafeteria for a food sale. Later--School is almost over! This was my last Field Day at Burbank. Gen and I are going swimming to cool off, To- night there was a Spring Festival Dance in the auditorium. I am glad that I didn't miss it. ' Dear Diary,- June 4 It won't be long now! Summer is coming. Gen and I played Ping-Pong yesterday. I hunted up old clothes and a bathing suit last night. To- night is graduation for the H9 classes. I think that I enjoyed this the best of all this term. Dear Diary, June 5 Today we got our honors and awards in the assembly. My duties as a Wizard Editor are all over. I certainly have enjoyed the position. I have had a good time at Burbank and really hate to leave it. This after- noon Gen and I sang, UGood Times are Gomin'u so much that we wore it out. The great open spaces are calling, and ------ Well Diary, I'll be with you again in the middle of next August. Renee Mattingly H9y'
